Londontown is a small section of Somerton between the train tracks on Southampton Road and Carter Road.
Tudor Village is a subsection of the neighborhood, comprised of the houses on the western side of Southampton Road above the train tracks and below Worthington Road. Most of the houses were constructed by an Estonian man named Uno Kallaste, who left a street bearing his surname. Streets in Tudor Village bear the names of his family members, notably Ina (pronounced EE-na) Drive named after Uno's wife.
Somerton is home to Philadelphia's Somerton Tank Farms, an experiment in Urban Farming.
